Daytripper or Tour?

Looking into Mustang seats. Initially I was looking at the Tour, but the Daytripper has grabbed my interest. I like its low profile, but I question its comfort. I know the Tour is going to be comfortable, but it's significantly taller & wider than stock.

I generally just cruise and relax, but I do occasionally enjoy an aggressive ride. Any thoughts on the two seats?

I have a touring on my Sportster and it is very comfortable, but as you mentioned, it is wider so can limit those with short legs like me. I also have a custom low profile seat that is great for height but is not great for 200 mile days.

Thanks for the input. That's kinda what I was thinking. After some research, it seems like the only people posting about their Daytripper seats are Harley guys. General consensus is that with the lower profile, it moves you farther away from the bars (almost 3"). Some guys even had to put on longer bars to compensate for it. They also say it's hella comfortable for the rider, but one guy did a 3 day ride with his wife and said while it's the most comfortable seat he's ever used, it obviously wasn't designed with a passenger in mind. Several days after the ride, his wife's was still sore.

I ride solo most of the time so I'm not too concerned about the passenger's end of it. I may just get the Tour for the occasional long trip and just leave my stock seat on most of the time. Just leery of spending money on something that I may end up not wanting.

I went with the Mustang Touring Regal, and a Cobra sissy Bar 17" as I recall
Very comfortable.

I was abit dissapoint in the mounting, Only the front tounge engages and one small hold down bolt on the back. No side bolts like the original.
Guess thats typical.
And yes the button tucks hold a little water on a very rainy ride.
I am not that agreesive on this bike but do drag the pegs now and then.

Very nice to ride 200 plus miles without any fatigue.

Hows the Vance Hines coming along?

Pipes are on backorder til the 13th. Guess Sabre parts aren't in high enough demand for retailers to keep them in stock.
